Russian River Wine Tasting in Sonoma County
We invite you into our Sebastopol vineyard home to try the best Pinot Noir in Sonoma County. This intimate experience is set in one of the most gorgeous locations in Northern California - the foggy rolling hills of Sebastopol in the Russian River Valley on the majestic Sonoma Coast.
Wine Tasting Events
EXPERIENCE AWARD-WINNING WINES
In the heart of our family-owned Sebastopol estate vineyard, taste a selection of 7-8 wines that continue to draw accolades for their expression and quality.
At our Sonoma Valley wine tastings, we pair our domestically and internationally awarded wines with local artisan delectables, from organic cheeses to hand-made chocolates containing our luscious Halleck Vineyard Pinot Noir.
TAKE A JOURNEY WITH US
As we move through the wines from our neighborhood, we’ll invite you to examine the nuances in the aroma and flavor of each. We’ll also explore the benefit of pairing food to lift and enhance your experience - and transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Flavor is an amazing thing. It can evoke emotions and memories - and we’ll help to create new memories on this exclusive wine tasting journey.
JOIN US IN OUR HOME
Your wine tasting with Halleck does not take place in a traditional Sebastopol tasting room. This is our home, and inviting you in is a gesture of intimacy. This family-owned and friendly setting is what makes our wine tasting in Sonoma County so special.
BEST WINE TASTING IN SEBASTOPOL
The 1 acre estate vineyard that surrounds our house was the first in the Sebastopol region, and as pioneers in the area, we feel particularly qualified to share what makes it so special.
You'll learn about the magic of this wine growing region, from the famed morning fog that blankets our hills, to the soil content from the Sonoma Coast to the Russian River Valley that lends such diversity and character to our wine tastings.
BE A PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER
Our mission is Building Community Through Wine, employing these extraordinary fruits of the earth. So be prepared to learn, explore, and form meaningful connections through this very personal 90 minute wine tasting experience.
We believe in shared experiences, and making the world a better place. We’ve raised over three quarters of a million dollars for the charities supported by our wine club members. Being able to make that difference is what gets us up in the morning.
Wine tasting is an inner journey, and we hope to guide you and join you on that journey – so you can determine for yourself which wines breathe magic into your glass and even your soul.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR VISIT
We want your wine tasting in Sonoma County to be a comfortable one. If you're looking for where to stay in Sonoma for wine tasting, ask about our our newly remodeled private suite.
Above all, come to Halleck Vineyard with curiosity and interest in Sonoma Wineries – and be prepared to thoroughly enjoy yourself.
WHAT TO WEAR
The coastal breeze and morning fog often give way to hot sunny afternoons in Sonoma Country, which means you need to be prepared for any weather. That’s why we recommend you dress in layers on the day you join us – and bring sunscreen just in case.
When choosing your outfit, it’s often best to opt for darker colors or patterns that can help hide wine spills should they occur. It’s also best to wear comfortable shoes for your tour of our Sebastopol estate vineyard.
WHAT TO AVOID
Since smell is a huge part of the tasting experience, we don’t want any scents competing for your attention. That’s why we ask you to please skip perfume/cologne for your visit. Lipstick or flavored chap sticks can also interfere. You might also wish to avoid coffee, breath mints and smoking right before your tasting, as these can mask flavors as well.
BRING YOUR FOUR-LEGGED FRIEND!
If you’re wondering whether to leave your dog at home, please bring them! We are not only dog-friendly, we resonate with people who love their dogs. We even have a Halleck Vineyard Dog Club. So, if you can’t bring your dog with you, at least show us a picture!
